I love the humor to this movie and the little lady was absolutely charming in every sense. And the music was very fitting as well..
So he rescued her when the rope broke in the Alps with a car handy while the train was waiting... WHAT LUCK!
I thought this was Graham Chapman.. Sure looked like him, but it wasn't..

Nice little light comedy. A sure chick-flick.
a little singing but it fit into the story. Also, nice to see actors I knew nothing about and had no expectations. I enjoyed this.
